raw data for your wednesday

“Electronic media created a new environment, rendering obsolete the patterns by which literate man codified reality. Suddenly, all information– freed from classifications which had long bound it– became raw data, available to everyone simultaneously via electronic media. Out of this vastly confusing wealth, each of us is forced to create his own environment— that is, program his own psychic & sensory life. To this end we turn to the arts, for only artists, and maybe criminals, create their own lives.”
